FULL-YEAR RESULTS

Full-year 2018 sales of $29.68 billion increased 12 percent from sales of $26.55 billion in 2017. Net income for 2018 was $716 million, or $8.10 per share on a diluted basis, compared with net income of $402 million, or $4.48 per share on a diluted basis, in 2017. Excluding certain items1, net income would have been $781 million, or $8.83 per share on a diluted basis, in 2018 compared with net income of $674 million, or $7.51 per share on a diluted basis, in 2017. In 2018, changes in foreign currencies had positive impacts on growth of approximately $252 million, or 1 percent on sales, and $.06, or 1 percent, on earnings per share on a diluted basis compared to 2017.

We executed well in 2018, and continue to see good returns on our organic investments. Operating income, excluding certain items1, increased 16 percent compared to a 12 percent increase in sales. Fourth-quarter cash flow from operations was $263 million as our business model generates substantial cash in lower growth environments, said Chris Stansbury, senior vice president and chief financial officer. In the fourth quarter, we reduced leverage, and we returned approximately $150 million to shareholders through our stock repurchase program. With the recent authorization of an additional $600 million of repurchases, we had approximately $729 million of remaining authorization under our share repurchase programs at the end of the year.

1 A reconciliation of non-GAAP adjusted financial measures, including sales, as adjusted, operating income, as adjusted, net income attributable to shareholders, as adjusted, and net income per share, as adjusted, to GAAP financial measures is presented in the reconciliation tables included herein.

GUIDANCE

As we look to the first quarter, we believe that total sales will be between $6.775 billion and $7.175 billion, with global components sales between $4.975 billion and $5.175 billion, and global enterprise computing solutions sales between $1.8 billion and $2.0 billion. As a result of this outlook, we expect earnings per share on a diluted basis, to be in the range of $1.61 to $1.73, and earnings per share on a diluted basis, excluding certain items1, to be in the range of $1.84 to $1.96 per share. Our guidance assumes an average tax rate at the high end of the long-term range of 23.5 to 25.5 percent, and average diluted shares outstanding of 87 million. We are expecting interest expense will total approximately $58 million. We are expecting the average USD-to-Euro exchange rate for the first quarter to be approximately $1.14 to ‚¬1. We estimate changes in foreign currencies will have a negative impact on growth of approximately $160 million, or 2 percent on sales, and $.08, or 4 percent, on earnings per share on a diluted basis compared to the first quarter of 2018, said Mr. Stansbury.

Information Relating to Forward-Looking Statements

This press release includes forward-looking statements that are subject to numerous assumptions, risks, and uncertainties, which could cause actual results or facts to differ materially from such statements for a variety of reasons, including, but not limited to: industry conditions, the company’s implementation of its new enterprise resource planning system, changes in product supply, pricing and customer demand, competition, other vagaries in the global components and global enterprise computing solutions markets, changes in relationships with key suppliers, increased profit margin pressure, the effects of additional actions taken to become more efficient or lower costs, risks related to the integration of acquired businesses, changes in legal and regulatory matters, and the companys ability to generate additional cash flow. Forward-looking statements are those statements which are not statements of historical fact. These forward-looking statements can be identified by forward-looking words such as “expects,” “anticipates,” “intends,” “plans,” “may,” “will,” “believes,” “seeks,” “estimates,” and similar expressions. Shareholders and other readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date on which they are made. The company undertakes no obligation to update publicly or revise any of the forward-looking statements.

For a further discussion of factors to consider in connection with these forward-looking statements, investors should refer to Item 1A Risk Factors of the companys Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018.

Certain Non-GAAP Financial Information

In addition to disclosing financial results that are determined in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP), the company also provides certain non-GAAP financial information relating to sales, operating income, net income attributable to shareholders, and net income per basic and diluted share. The company provides sales on a non-GAAP basis adjusted for the impact of changes in foreign currencies and the impact of acquisitions/dispositions by adjusting the company’s operating results, including the amortization expense related to acquired/disposed intangible assets, as if the acquisitions/dispositions had occurred at the beginning of the earliest period presented (referred to as “impact of acquisitions” and “impact of dispositions”). Operating income, net income attributable to shareholders, and net income per basic and diluted share are adjusted to exclude identifiable intangible amortization, restructuring, integration, and other charges, and certain charges, credits, gains, and losses that the company believes impact the comparability of its results of operations. These charges, credits, gains, and losses arise out of the companys efficiency enhancement initiatives, acquisitions/dispositions (including intangible assets amortization expense), the impact of tax reform, and financing activities. A reconciliation of the companys non-GAAP financial information to GAAP is set forth in the tables below.

The company believes that such non-GAAP financial information is useful to investors to assist in assessing and understanding the companys operating performance and underlying trends in the companys business because management considers these items referred to above to be outside the companys core operating results. This non-GAAP financial information is among the primary indicators management uses as a basis for evaluating the companys financial and operating performance. In addition, the companys Board of Directors may use this non-GAAP financial information in evaluating management performance and setting management compensation.

The presentation of this additional non-GAAP financial information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or alternative to, sales, operating income, net income and net income per basic and diluted share determined in accordance with GAAP. Analysis of results and outlook on a non-GAAP basis should be used as a complement to, and in conjunction with, data presented in accordance with GAAP.
